Chicken Pot Pie

Cam D Oct 16, 2011 08:06 AM

My very pregnant wife is craving chicken pot pie. I am craving potentially my last very good meal for a while.
So looking for reservations tonight (Sunday) in Toronto somewhere that serves Chicken Pot Pie and is a quality place. Help!

    If you feel like staying in....go to Summerhill Market and pick up one of their lovely chicken pot pies and whatever else takes your fancy there...lots to choose from....and have a very enjoyable meal.

      I would not get the chicken pie from Summerhill market. Although loaded with large chunks of white meat, I find it too dry with little sauce and veg.

        Summerhill's used to be great, but for the last year it's just been meh.

          I love Summerhill Market, but (for more than the last year) I've found their chicken pie to be not so great...quite "gloppy". For take out chicken pie, I far prefer Cumbrae's.

      Unfortunately a lot of the better places are closed on Sundays for dinner. You could check out a place called "Against the Grain" near the Waterfront. I have not been, but some mixed comments here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/781149 And has decent reviews on yelp: http://www.yelp.ca/biz/against-the-gr...

        Bannock serves the "Arcadian Court" chicken pot pie which is amazing.

          Bannock's dining room closes at 4:00pm, and take-out closes at 6:00pm on Sundays.

            Oh bummer. I ate lunch there on Sunday not long ago, hence my confusion.

              On a related matter, I understand the Arcadian Court is reopening its buffet in November until the Christmas season....prior to their big make-over in 2012.

          The Canadian Pie Company - bad name maybe, but great place. Haven't had the savoury but they look great!

            Curious: Why is that a bad name?
            Where is it?

              The address and link to their profile is at the bottom of my message - The Canadian Pie Company 798 Queen St E, Toronto East of Broadview

              Why a bad name? No good reason really - just my own bias. Food places called Hut, Shoppe, Great Canadian, Company, Factory, Rama just turn me off : )

                Hey Cam D. congratulations!!! Now I know why we haven't seen much of you on Chow these days. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

                p.s. I agree with the suggestion above - Summerhill Market makes an excellent CPP.

                  If I was Cam D, I'd ask a famous chef to do me a favour and make me a CPP!

                  I was also wondering why he rarely posted this year.

            Believe it or not I had a pretty good one from Costco recently.

              +1 It is massive though....especially for one person LOL (even though I did make several meals out of it)

                Oh definitely way too big for one person.. But it re-heats well, maybe even better than when first baked because it gets a little bit more crispy on the crust. Still it was a pleasant surprise to see nice chunks of white meat, gravy, and well cooked veggies on the inside. No undercooked/hard potatoes too which is what I was worried about

                  Agreed! Tender veggies, ample sauce, juicy chicken (even when reheated in the oven).

              Patachou has the best chicken pot pie in the city.

                If the cravings are still there, some Loblaw locations make their own CPP. I haven't bought one in a coupla years but I remember them being pretty tasty and real cheap. Like $10 or $11 for an entire pie. The chicken comes shredded, not in chunks, but it's still very good. They also do smaller individual sizes as well.

                All the best on your little one!
